two aldermen present to defer any of said reports, for firml action thereon, to the next regular meeting of 
the Council, except where otherwise indicated below. 



COMMITTEE ON FINANCE. 



Authority Granted for Issuance and Sale of New 1956 

Tax Anticipation Warrants for Purpose of 

Restoring Certain City Funds. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending that the following proposed ordinance 
transmitted therewith do pass: 

An Ordinance 
Authorizing the Re-Issue of Tax Anticipation War- 
rants Held as an Investment in the Funds of 
the City. 

Whereas, The tax anticipation warrants issued 
by the City of Chicago, hereinafter described, were 
purchased with funds in the City treasury which 
were not immediately necessary for the particular 
purposes for which said funds were set aside and 
the taxes in anticipation of which said warrants 



were issued have not been received by the City; 
and 

Whereas, It is now deemed expedient to convert 
said tax anticipation warrants into money for the 
restoration of the funds invested in said tax an- 
ticipation warrants for use for the particular pur- 
poses for which said funds were set aside; now 
therefore, 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago : 

Section 1. The City Comptroller and the City 
Treasurer hereby are authorized to issue and sell 
new warrants, as provided in Section 15-9 of the 
Revised Cities and Villages Act, in lieu of the fol- 
lowing original tax anticipation warrants heretofore 
issued by the City of Chicago and now held as an 
investment in the funds of the City:

The authority to issue the original warrants 
above described hereby is reaffirmed in all respects. 

Section 2. The new warrants hereby author- 
ized to be issued and sold shall be of a like prin- 
cipal amount, for the same purpose and in anticipa- 
tion of the same taxes as the original warrants 
were issued, and shall be subject to all the provi- 
sions in Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised 



Cities and Villages Act. The new warrants may 
have any date subsequent to the date of the original 
tax anticipation warrants, shall be of the denomina- 
tion of $1000 or multiples thereof, shall bear in- 
terest not to exceed four percent per annum from 
the date thereof until paid and shall be sold by the 
City Comptroller at not less than the par value 
thereof and accrued interest from the date thereof. 

Section 3. Simultaneously with the delivery of 
and receipt of payment for any of the new tax 
anticipation warrants, a like principal amount of 
the original warrants that were issued against the 
same tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, 
together with so much of the interest accrued 
thereon as the proceeds of the sale of the new tax 
anticipation warrants will permit, shall be paid and 
cancelled. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax anticipa- 
tion warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer 
to restore the funds of the City of Chicago invested 
in the original tax anticipation warrants. Before 
cancellation of the principal amount of any original 
warrant, the City Treasurer shall separately en- 
dorse thereon the amount paid and the date of pay- 
ment in the following order: (1) the principal 
amount so paid and (2) the amount of accrued 
interest paid. The City Treasurer shall also endorse 
upon the original tax anticipation warrants the 
amount of interest accrued thereon and unpaid, and 
the same shall not be paid until all principal and 
interest upon the new warrants shall be fully paid 
or until money has been set aside for payment 
thereof, if the new warrants are not presented for 
payment after they are called for redemption. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage and approval.

The property involved in the litigation is located

the plaintiffs are engaged in manufacturing opera- 
tions.

you that the Supreme Court of Illinois held that 
the trial court properly entered a decree denying 
plaintiffs' prayers for permanent injunction and 
properly restrained them from using the premises 



in violation of section 12 ( 2 ) of the Chicago Zoning 
Ordinance and section 99-60 of the Municipal Code. 

The action of the Supreme Court of the United 
States brings this litigation to a successful con- 
clusion."

Whereas, the present traffic at Meigs Field 
places it eleventh in volume of traffic among the

Resolved, that the Civil Aeronautics Authority

Tower at Meigs Field at the earliest possible 
time; and, be it

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCILr— CHICAGO 



May 9, 1956 



The above elevations as fixed shall be measured 
from Chicago City datum as established by the 
City Council of the City of Chicago. 

The roadway(s) of the street(s) heretofore 
specified between the points herein described, also 
the roadway (s) intersecting alley (s) extended 
from the curb line to the street line on each side 
of said specified street (s) between the points here- 
in described, after removing trees therefrom, shall 
be so graded by cutting or filling and compacted by 
rolling with a roller of ten (10) tons weight that 
after the grading of the roadbed (s) is completed 
and the pavement herein described placed thereon, 
the surface of the finished pavement at the center 
of the roadway of each of said specified street (s) 
shall be at the elevation of the top of the curbing 
herein described; and the surface of the said fin- 
ished pavement at the summits in the gutters be- 
tween catchbasins and adjoining the roadway face 
of the curbing shall be three (3) inches below the 
top of said curbing, and at the catchbasin inlets in 
the gutters adjoining the roadway face of the curb- 
ing shall be nine (9) inches below the top of said 
curbing. The slope of the gutters adjoining the 
roadway face of said curbing shall be uniform 
from the summits to the catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the fin- 
ished pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a 
circle passing through the said gutter elevations 
and the elevation of the center of said finished 
roadway at every part of the roadway of said 
specified street (s) between the points herein de- 
scribed. 

In all intersecting alley (s) herein specified at 
the street line(s) of said specified street (s) the 
surface of the finished pavement adjoining the 
curbing shall be even with the top of the curbing, 
and the surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway (s) of said alley (s) shall be 
three (3) inches below the top of the curbing: 
and a transverse section of the surface of the 
finished pavement at the street line(s) of said 
specified street (s) shall be an arc of a circle pass- 
ing through the surface of the pavement adjoining 
said curbing and the surface of the pavement at 
the center of said finished roadway (s). The sur- 
face of the said pavement thence shall slope gradu- 
ally to meet the surface of the finished pavement 
at the curb lines of said specified street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch 
in thickness and shall extend across the full width 
of the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of 
four (4) inches internal diameter and held on a 
ring of two (2) inches internal diameter. The stone 
as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall 
be evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets 
filled with the small size stone. This layer shall 
be thoroughly rolled with a self-propelled three- 
wheel roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. 
The rolling shall begin at the edges of the pave- 
ment and the roller shall move parallel with the 
center line of the roadway. The roller shall prog- 
ress gradually toward the center of the roadway, 
uniformly lapping each preceding track, covering 
the entire surface with the rear wheels and con- 
tinuing until the stone does not creep or move 
ahead of the roller. After the crushed limestone 
has been thoroughly rolled and keyed, limestone 



screenings shall be applied gradually over the sur- 
face and the rolling continued until suflacient 
screenings have been applied to completely fill the 
interstices. 

The screenings shall be swept in with hand 
brooms to properly fill the voids. The spreading 
and rolling shall continue until no more screenings 
will go in dry. No excess of screenings shall be 
used before applying water. Immediately after the 
voids have been filled with screenings, the macadam 
shall be sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler 
being followed by a roller. More screenings shall 
be added if necessary. The sprinkling, sweeping 
and rolling shall continue until a grout shall be 
formed of the screenings and water that will fill 
all voids, and form a wave of grout before the 
wheels of the roller. The quantity of screenings 
and water necessary to fill the voids shall be deter- 
mined by the engineer and shall be sufficient to 
produce a rough, granular surface. The rolling, at 
all times, shall begin at the sides, and then prog- 
ress toward the center, thoroughly covering the 
entire surface with the rear wheels. When com- 
pacted, this layer shall measure not less than five 
(5) inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a 
depth providing a total base course thickness of 
three (3) inches after final compaction. After 
shaping to grade and rolling with' a ten (10) ton 
roller three quarter (34) inch stone chips shall be 
broadcast and broomed into the surface voids at 
the rate of fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. 
Liquid asphalt at a temperature of 140° F. shall 
be uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at 
a rate of one and one-half (1^/2) gallons per square 
yard. Stone chips shall again be broadcast and 
broomed uniformly over the surface at the rate of 
fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid as- 
phalt shall be uniformly applied by a pressure 
distributor at the rate of one-half (1/2) gallon per 
square yard. Stone chips shall be broadcast again

(Table 45.11 p. 247 State Specifications.) 

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Division 
of Highways for Grade P.A. 6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash 
point (Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. 
It shall have penetration at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eighty- 
five (85), and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths 
(99.5) per cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in 
carbon disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty -five (325) 
degrees fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving as- 
phalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquette Dow form of said paving 
asphalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters 
per minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three himdred 
(300) and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fah- 
renheit in an approved mixer to produce a homo- 
geneous mixture in which all particles of aggregate 
are coated uniformly. The heated mixture shall be 
delivered to the pavement in trucks with approved 
clean tight dump bodies. The temperature when 
delivered at the street shall be between two hun- 
dred fifty (250) and three hundred fifty (350) 
degrees fahrenheit. Upon arrival the aspaltic mix- 
ture shall be spread upon the prepared base at a 
uniform depth and consistency so that the thick- 
ness when compacted as herein described will be 
two (2) inches. Immediately after the asphalt 
surface course shall be spread it shall be compacted 
thoroughly and uniformly with a three (3) wheel 
roller or a tandem roller. The asphalt paving mix 
shall be dumped first upon approved steel dump 
pans outside of the area on which it is to be 
spread. Immediately thereafter it shall be distrib- 
uted into place with shovels and spread with rakes 
in layers of uniform density and correct depth, 
unless a spreading machine is used. If a spreading 
machine is used it shall be of a type approved by 
the Board of Local Improvements. Immediately 
after the surface course mixture is placed it shall 
be compacted thoroughly and uniformly with a 
three-wheel roller or a tandem roller. One (1) or 
more three-wheel rollers, and one (1) or more tan- 
dem rollers will be required. The actual number 
of such rollers to be used shall be determined by 
the Engineer in accordance with the progress of 
the work. If the production of the asphalt plant 
delivered to the pavement exceeds seventy-five 
(75) tons per hour additional rollers shall be fur- 
nished as directed by said Engineer. After final 
rolling the asphalt surface sourse shall at all points 
have a density of not less than ninety-five (95) 
per cent of the maximum possible density of a 
voidless pavement composed of the same materials 
in like proportions. 



Concrete cross-walks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete cross-walks shall be built ac- 
cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and 
gutters) . 

All existing catchbasins which are to be aban- 
doned are located at the intersections of streets. 
Where existing catchbasins are to be abandoned 
the outlet pipe connection from the catchbasin to 
the sewer shall be plugged and properly sealed and 
the corbel courses broken down and the catchbasin 
cleaned and filled with suitable material. 

Said work is to be done in a workmanlike manner 
under the superintendence of the Board of Local 
Improvements of the said City of Chicago. 

Section 2. That the recommendation of the 
Board of Local Improvements of the City of 
Chicago, providing for said improvement, together 
with the estimate of the cost hereof, including the 
lawful expenses attending the same, made by the 
engineer of said Board both hereto attached, be

Section 3. That said improvement shall be made 
and the cost thereof, including the lawful expenses 
attending the same, be paid by special assessment 
in accordance with an Act of the General Assembly 
of the State of Illinois, entitled, "An Act Concern- 
ing Local Improvements," approved June 14th, 
A. D. 1897, and the amendments thereto, and that

Thousand One Hundred Seventy-Eight and No One- 
Hundredths Dollars ($11,178.00) not exceeding five 
(5) per centum of the amount of said assessment 
as finally determined after the completion of said 
improvement in accordance with Section 84 of said 
Act, shall be applied toward the payment of the 
cost of making, levying and collecting said special 
assessment, and of letting and executing contracts, 
advertising, clerical hire, engineering and inspec- 
tion, court costs and deficiency in interest in the 
matter of said special assessment, in accordance 
with the provisions of said Act. 

Section 4. That the aggregate amount herein 
ordered to be assessed against the property, and 
also the assessment on each lot and parcel of land 
therein assessed shall be divided into installments 
in the manner provided by the statute in such 
cases made and provided, and each of said install- 
ments shall bear interest at the rate of five (5) 
per centum per annum according to law until paid. 

Section 5. That for the purpose of anticipating 
the collection of the second and succeeding install- 
ments of said assessment for said improvement 
(excepting such part, if any, that is chargeable to 
the City of Chicago for public benefits to public 
lands), bonds shall be issued payable out of said 
installments bearing interest at the rate of five (5) 
per centum per annum, payable annually, and 
signed by the Mayor and by the President of the 
Board of Local Improvements, countersigned by

man Pacini and Alderman Bohling) reading as fol- 
lows : 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago has gone on record by means of a former re- 
solution, advocating the widening and straightening 
of the CJalumet River and modification of the Cal- 
umet Western, Western Indiana, and New York, 
Chicago and St. Louis Railway Bridges over the 
Calumet River, as authorized in House Document 
494, 72nd Congress, 2d Session, 1935, and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago transferred all of 
its right, title and interest in Lake Calumet to the 
Chicago Regional Port District by quitclaim deed 
on April 19, 1955, for the purpose of building a 
Commercial and Industrial Harbor at Lake Calumet, 
Riparian titles surrounding the Lake have been 
quieted, boundaries fixed, and a systematic harbor 
plan for a deep-draft, lake-rail, truck, and barge 
terminal already commenced on October 1st, 1955,

Whereas, The Chicago Regional Port District is 
expending twenty-four million dollars ($24,000,000)

integrated Commercial and Industrial Harbor — the 
entire first phase of which is scheduled for comple- 
tion on April 1st, 1957, at which time terminal 
operators, grain elevator operators, warehousemen, 
barge lines, railroads, and domestic and foreign 
shippers will have a unified integrated harbor for 
exporting, importing, and trans-shipment of agri- 
cultural, manufactured, and bulk products, and 

Whereas, Such harbor developments are pre- 
dicated on the need for docking facilities for the 
largest type of ships in both domestic and foreign 
trade, and 

Whereas, Aids and benfits to navigation will re- 
sult from the modification or replacement of the 
aforesaid railway bridges, i.e., the Calumet Western 
Railway Bridge, the Chicago and Western Indiana 
Railway Bridge, and the New York, Chicago and 
St. Louis Railway Bridge, located in the vicinity of 
Torrence Avenue and about one mile from the en- 
trance to Lake Calumet, as well as the continued 
further dredging and widening of the Calumet 
River, and 



Whereas, The necessary easements to widen and 
straighten the Calumet River Channel have been or 
are being procured by the Chicago Regional Port 
District for the Federal Government for the fur- 
therance of said improvements. 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council reaffirm its position as favoring the modifi- 
cation or replacement of said bridges together with 
the widening and straightening of the Calumet 
River Channel between Lake Michigan and Lake 
Calumet, and the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago again urges the District Engineer, United

U. S. Congress Memorialized to Enact Legislation to 
Relocate National Library of Medicine in Chicago. 

Also a proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, There is pending before the Congress 
of the United States, a bill providing for the re- 
moval to a more accessible location, the world's 
largest medical library; an invaluable instrument 
for medical and scientific research, with its more 
than 650,000 volumes accumulated since its foun- 
dation by the U. S. Army in Washington, D. C. 
over 75 years ago, and 

Whereas, The library is now crowded into a 
Civil War building; its services handicapped for 
lack of space and its safety and protection jeopar- 
dized by the danger of fire or other natural hazards, 
and 

Whereas, The bill provides for the renaming of 
the library as the National Library of Medicine 
and most aptly transferred from the jurisdiction 
of the Department of Defense to that of the De- 
partment of Health, Education and Welfare; and 
further provides that the new library may and 
should be moved to a location more readily avail- 
able to centers of medical research than is its 
present inadequate site, and 

Whereas, Chicago is already the Nation's num- 
ber one medical center, offering unsurpassed facili- 
ties for medical treatment, teaching and research 
in the fields of medicine and surgery; is also the 
transportation hub of the United States for air, 
bus, rail and automobile travel, and 

Whereas, If moved to Chicago and housed in a 
modem fireproof structure, the new library would 
be a storehouse of knowledge, enhancing the city's 
fame as a world medical center, and establishing 
it as the most acceptable and desirable location 
for the benefit of all interested parties from all 
parts of the Nation desiring access to the historic 
volumes, and 

Whereas, His Honor, Mayor Daley is leading the 
drive to present Chicago's claim for Congressional 



recognition of its pre-eminent position in the medi- 
cal field by locating the new library within the con- 
fines of the City; and will soon appoint a civic 
committee to take charge of the campaign; there- 
fore. 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of Chicago 
in regular session does hereby unanimously endorse 
the campaign for placing Chicago's unmatchable 
qualifications as a site for the medical library; and 
respectfully memorializes the Congress to give 
prompt attention to Chicago's plea, and 

Be It Further Resolved, That a copy of this reso- 
lution be sent to the United States Senators from 
Illinois and the Representatives in the Congress 
from the Chicago area and all other Districts of 
the State, with the request that they give their 
official and personal support to the non-partisan 
civic movement to bring to Chicago the largest 
and most authentic medical library in the world, 
in keeping with Chicago's great reputation for edu- 
cation and scientific achievement. 

On motion of Alderman Cullerton (seconded by 
the entire membership of the City Council) said pro- 
posed resolution was unanimously adopted.
